Where is Steamboat Springs?

Don't waste time looking for Steamboat Springs, the hot springs for which the town was named—they are dry now. The springs once sat next to the Yampa River, where the 13th Street Bridge now stands, and once were so feisty that people miles away thought the 15-foot-high spewer sounded like a steamboat churning down the river. When the railroad came to Steamboat in 1909, the springs mysteriously became nothing but a burble; some believe the railroad company somehow had something to do with that.
